Welcome to fifth grade!

My name is, Kasey McAllister, and I am currently a fifth grade teacher at Gateway Elementary. Previously, I have  experience working at Boys Town, Don Clifton’s Child Development Center, and Westside Public Schools. I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from the University of Nebraska at Omaha.  At home I have one son who is in fifth grade! Please feel free to e-mail me at or leave a voice mail if you have any questions. I will return your message as soon as possible. The REMIND application is a great way to stay in touch with current events of our classroom. Please let me know if you need help registering! 


In fifth grade we are always preparing for our Nebraska state test in the spring and our quarterly MAP progress tests. Please see links below at any time for practice tests!
